[resolved] Hide or delete categories, "Uncategorized" included (9 posts)

    Hi,

    I don't want to use my website as a blog. When I write an "About" text in the post on my default Home page it reads "Posted in Uncategorized" under the header. I don't want this or any other category to show.

    Any clue on how to hide or remove the categories? I have scanned some of the files but have been able to find the place where I can edit the "categories" options...

    Thanks

    Hi,

    when using WP it's important to understand the difference between "posts" and "pages". Posts are blog posts (or news for example), pages are static content.

    If you don't want to use WP as a blog, "pages" work better for you. Here's how you create a static Home page:

    1. Add a new page and write your "About" text there.

    2. Go to Settings > Reading and select the page you just created as your home page.

    3. that's it!

    That was easy. Thanks a ton! This looks much better.

    Really like the theme, by the way. Guess you figured since I installed it but it was exactly the kind of thing I was looking for.

    I am almost ready to go "on air" but there's two other things I'd like to change. Hope you can help me again

    1/ I like the ¶ sign as the footer not sign but not in front of the site's name. How do I remove it?

    2/ I would like the home page I created yesterday to be without a header. I prefer a clear, clean text block, starting right under the menu. The "Home" header sort of breaks the layout.

    How do I take it out?

    Thanks for guiding me through my beginner stages!

    Oops, 1/ should read as: "I like the ¶ sign as the footer sign but not in front of the site's name".

    Hi,
    1) you have to remove this from style.css:

    header#main-header h1:before {
    content: "0B6";
    }

    2) add this to your style.css:

    .home article h1 {
    display: none;
    }
